Painting Food Services Refrigerator

Institutional Painting, Refrigerator

COMPASE (Commercial Painting) was contracted to clean and paint a Food Service refrigerator in a dining  carea-cafeteria. This was for one of our regular customers, a not-for-profit organization, a large retirement home located in the south west area of Toronto.
The timeline of the project was understandably  tight.
The customers staff had to empty the refrigerator and air it out first. Then the walls had to be washed, de-greased and rinsed well before any sanding or priming could take place.
After scuff-sanding and dusting the surfaces, there was some corrosion and rust that had to be treated and spot-primed with a rust resistant primer. After the rust primer a bonding primer had to be used . Some panels had to be caulked with enough drying time before painting.
The coating used, was Benjamin Moore’s DTM (Direct To Metal) paint. This is an acrylic coating with great durability and adhesion. It is a FDA (Food and Drug Administration) quality coating, which made it appropriate to use in this situation.

Considering the drying times between coats of paint, the project was completed successfully by our Commercial Toronto Painters within 48 hours.
